Given the range of forecasts, which include the significant possibility of rain during the time of the ceremony as well as a chance of thunderstorms, the Class of 2017 Commencement Ceremony has been moved indoors to the Huss Center for the Performing Arts on SPA's Randolph Campus. The ceremony will still begin at 4 p.m.
As we move indoors, please remember these details which were laid out in an earlier e-mail to the SPA community:
- Each household has received 5 tickets for seating in the Huss Auditorium. Please bring those tickets; there will be ticket-takers at each door.
- In addition to the Huss Center, the ceremony will be live-streamed for all other guests in Driscoll Commons (down the hall from the Huss auditorium), Redleaf Commons (immediately outside the auditorium), and the Upper Library, all of which have seating prepared.
- The live stream will also be available online (and it will be recorded) for friends and family who cannot attend this afternoon.
Best wishes, and congratulations to the Class of 2017 -- the weather does nothing to diminish their wonderful day!
